'A friendly Lincolnshire-based club for anyone with an interest in playing, or listening to others play, the accordion ... Sometimes, we are invited to send players to entertain outside the confines of the Club. Please bear in mind that whether we are able to oblige depends upon the type of function, size of venue etc. We are not professionals, but enthusiastic amateurs, and our beloved instruments are mainly acoustic without amplification.'
